Hello, All!

I have just published iNES-Android 3.7.2, the new version of my NES/Famicom emulator, to the Google Play Market:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...d=com.fms.ines

This version comes with the much extended Freeze/Restore feature, fixed Cheat Editor, and some relief for tablet owners, who can now toggle the action bar with a vertical fling gesture. Flinging up hides the action bar, flinging down makes it reappear.

Here is the full list of changes:

* The action bar can now be toggled with a vertical fling gesture.
* Added screenshots, autosaved state, and two more slots to the Freeze/Restore.
* Added Italian translation.
* Made Cheat Editor remove whitespace from input and save cheats reliably.
* Optimized screen updates sync, for better framerates.
* Fixed cut-off landscape display on Nexus7 and other tablets.
* File selector now memorizes the last seleted position.
* Now pausing gameplay immediately when opening Android menu.

Have fun!

The file selector now allows fast navigation with the alphabetical sections list, more or less like the address book app. The file selector looks cleaner now, and the screenshots got larger too.

Re: iNES-Android Release News

Good news for all JRPG players and everyone else who likes playing Japanese games. The iNES-Android 3.7.7 released tonight will automatically load and apply .IPS patches, such as English translations. Thus, if you have got a game named "MyGame.nes", name the corresponding patch file "MyGame.ips" and place it into the same place where your game is. Also added mapper #184 and finally fixed the button labels in the accelerated video mode.

You can download the newest iNES-Android here:

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.fms.ines

Lots of NES .IPS patches can be found here:

FULL CHANGE LIST:
* Added support for .IPS patch files. For "mygame.nes" use "mygame.ips".
* Now showing button labels with OpenGLES acceleration enabled.
* No longer deleting buttons layout on each upgrade.
* Added NES mapper #184. Kanshakudama Nage Kantarou no Toukaidou Gojuusan Tsugi runs now.

I have just released iNES-Android 3.7.12 with the network play capability. Yes, you can now play multiplayer NES games with other iNES users over Internet:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.ines

In order to use NetPlay, follow these steps:

1. Both players should be running the same game.
2. The first player should select "Connect NetPlay" from the menu and then choose "Become Server" option.
3. The second player should select "Connect NetPlay" and choose first player's name from the list of available servers.
4. Both emulators will now reset and start playing as if they were the same NES box with two gamepads.
5. Once you are done playing, select "Disconnect NetPlay" on both devices.

IMPORTANT: Both your devices have to be on the same local network or visible over Internet. You cannot use NetPlay from behind NAT right now.
